From the Publisher

The World Bank’s Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE) was held in Bangalore, India on May 21-23, 2003. The ABCDE, one of the world’s best-known conferences on development, was held for the first time in a developing country. “Accelerating Development” was the theme of the 2003 conference. Eminent scholars and practitioners from around the world presented new research findings and discuss key policy issues related to poverty reduction at the conference. The ABCDE has been held annually in Washington DC since 1989; since 1999, a similar conference has been held each year in Europe. Starting with the 2003 conference in Bangalore, each of these conferences will be held in a developing country every other year. This change reflects the growing importance of research done in developing countries and the need to bring such conferences closer to participants in the developing world. Conference topics for the ABCDE in Bangalore included: Fostering Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Growth; Challenges of Development in Lagging Regions; Participation, Inclusion and Results; Scaling Up and Evaluation.

Last month, NPR's David Greene asked Stephen Moore, who advised Trump's campaign on economic policy, whether he supports the idea of cutting the U.S. foreign aid budget. His response: "100 percent." "There's zero evidence that any of these foreign aid programs have had any effect on development, whether it's in the Middle East or Africa or South America," said Moore, who is a fellow at the Heritage Founda

Manage Your Home Economics as If You Are Running a Business, and Watch Your Savings Grow

I'm convinced that more people would achieve financial success if they managed their home economics as if they were running a small business. As a business owner, you do snap cost/benefit analysis on nearly every decision you make, but for some reason this intellectual rigor gets tossed out the window when it comes to personal finance. We frequently fall into the trap of expending a great deal of energy for a small financial payoff. Here are some examples. Daily victories. Welcome to the bread-and-butter of personal finance: easy and quick decisions that yield small rewards. I'm talking about

The Conservative Plan to Tackle Poverty

While fighting poverty hasn’t historically been a major focus of the Republican Party platform, House Speaker Paul Ryan has said that it will be one of his top priorities in the coming year. Approximately 13 percent of Americans live below the poverty line, a fact Ryan says is one of the “most persistent, stubborn problems facing the country.” That—at least—is something that both Democrats and Republicans can agree on. But when it comes to how to solve this problem, the two parties’ ideas differ greatly. On Thursday, at a conference hosted by the conservative American Enterprise Institute and
